Drunk driving suspect in Seattle crash had been arrested for DUI in Lynnwood

Our news partner, The Seattle Times, is reporting that driver in the Seattle crash that has claimed the lives of two individuals, had a string of DUI arrests, including one in Lynnwood on Oct. 8.

On Monday, police say, the 50-year-old Mullan drove his black 2012 Chevrolet Silverado quad cab into a family on an afternoon walk in Seattle’s Wedgwood neighborhood, killing Judy and Dennis Schulte and injuring their daughter-in-law and grandson. On Wednesday morning, Karina Ulriksen-Schulte, 33, and her 12-day-old son, Elias, remained in critical condition at Harborview Medical Center.

Court documents indicate that Mullan — who was driving on a suspended license — smelled of alcohol, failed field sobriety tests and had a preliminary blood-alcohol level of 0.22 percent, nearly three times the state’s legal limit of 0.08 percent. King County District Court Judge Mark Chow on Tuesday ordered Mullan held in lieu of $2.5 million bail for investigation of vehicular homicide and vehicular assault, $500,000 above what prosecutors had sought.
